Red Brick Farmhouse Bed & Breakfast is a 3 acre country retreat nestled on an 180 acre farm, in the picturesque rural outskirts of Higginsville, Missouri. This 1920's prairie style farmhouse, with its original 9 1/2 foot ceilings and old pine floors has been carefully renovated to recapture the charm of a bygone era. You are first greeted by the charming front porch, perfect for relaxing and viewing the yard with its dozens of mature shade trees and surrounding fields.
GUEST SPACE - In addition to the large yard where you can stretch your legs and refresh your mind, the Farmhouse offers a dining room that seats eight guests and a living room that includes a game table and cozy seating area around the fireplace. Of course do not forget enjoying sitting on the back patio or relaxing on the front porch with your favorite beverage.
GUEST ROOM - John and Hilda's Room is 17 ft by 14 ft room offering a king size, antique walnut bed with a Stearns and Foster mattress, ceiling fan, and a quaint sitting area for two. This is a second floor bedroom with 4 beautiful windows showcasing the lay of the farm land surrounding the lawn.
GUEST ACCESS - Guests may park on the west side of the circle driveway for the nearest convenience to the front porch entrance. You may enter the Bed & Breakfast by way of the front porch. Also you are welcome to sit on our large front porch in the morning to enjoy a cup of coffee or in the late evening to enjoy the stars, weather permitting of course.
